Rory McAllister fired the home side in front from the penalty spot after just eight minutes and Mitch Megginson made it 2-0 just two minutes later before Hamish Ritchie reduced the deficit on the quarter-hour mark in a breathless start to the contest.

Megginson grabbed his second goal of the game to restore Cove's cushion and a brace from Harry Milne made the game safe before Russell McLean's late consolation.
